Okay, so the title's kind of misleading. I don't hate the American People. I hate THE PHRASE, "The American People." It's typically used by some strutting, preening, posturing politician who wants to justify their latest piece of crap legislation by saying "But it's for The American People," as if that's justification enough.
For a prime example, you need look no further than Nancy Pelousy. This sad sack of something uses it constantly. The latest time I heard it come out of the rectal oriface on her face was when she was bleating about Obamacare. It went something like this: Finally The American People will be able to get the Healthcare they deserve.
You know what, Nancy? YOU DON'T REPRESENT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!
You simply represent one district, and what a district it is: San Francisco. I will acknowledge that you represent them well, considering they're mostly drug-addled perverts who want to suck on the government teat. (Seriously, the fat old naked guys that walk the street are offended by the idea they might put a towel down before they sit. When did your "right" to wander around with your junk hanging out supersede my right not to have to sit in the snail trail of butt sweat you leave behind?) But the rest of the country? NOT YOUR RESPONSIBILITY!
You'll hear the Searchlight Strangler himself, Harry Reid, talk about how the Tea Party Terrorists are holding the nation hostage, and they need to get out of the way, so our Benevolent Overlords can do the work of The American People. Well, you know what Harry? I'm one of those Tea Party Terrorists, I'm an American Person, and the only thing being held hostage around here is sanity, and it's the dumocRats on Crapitol Hill that have the nosse wrapped around it's neck.
For Harry the Pederast, it makes perfect sense to threaten to shut down the government while blubbering about Cowboy Poetry, but not over the takeover of one-sixth of the nation's economy.
You know what, Harry? I DON'T REMEMBER VOTING FOR YOU.
Of course, I don't live in Nevada, so I couldn't. Not that I would have. You know what? YOU DON'T REPRESENT ME, SO STOP PREDING YOU HAVE ANYTHING BUT ANIMOSITY TOWARD "THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!"
And the Loser-in-Chief, in the Oval Office. Is there a speech in which the phrase isn't loaded into the teleprompter at least a dozen times? My favorite instance was the time he said, "The American People deserve better," and I thought, "You're right, we do. So. When can we expect your resignation?"
This moron trashes half the country he purports to represent and he does it on a non-stop basis. And then gets indignant when we complain. You know what over half "The American People" want? OBAMACARE REPEALED. So don't get into telling me what the American People want or need. You're nothing but a community agitator with no skills beyond that one speech you give over and over and campaigning. That's why the last four (almost five) years have been nothing but disaster after disaster, failure after failure, and YOU KEEP ACTING LIKE IT'S SOMEONE ELSE'S FAULT!
This country is like a ship without a rudder, with a captain who'd rather play spades than steer.
And the Republicans have the same disease.
"The American People want..."
"The American People need..."
"The American People deserve..."
Well, THIS AMERICAN PERSON IS SICK OF HEARING WHAT I WANT, NEED OR DESERVE FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS NO IDEA I EVEN EXIST! SO STOP USING THE PHRASE LIKE YOU REPRESENT THE WILL OF EVERYONE IN THE COUNTRY!
Maybe it's just me.
